And yes, the algorhytm works like that, but what was not mentioned in the article is that this kind of content is often maintanied by bots which create accounts, upload or stream the material, and create comments. Links to sites containing child pornography are also posted by bots. When the video is found and removed along with account, bot changes its identity (new mail, new IP) and reuploads the stuff.
I managed to check some of those videos and tried to interact with "people" commenting on stream, and each of them failed turing test miserably.
This cycle can take from hours to months, because its not single bot, not single source. Think of hundreds of separate bots.
The content itself is stored on data repositories, encrypted, and password protected so unless you find out original link to provider of datastore and you dont report violation of the terms, the content remain available. YT is just 3rd or 4rth place where the content is made available, while the original source is heavily concealed.
